Producers Choice: Six Plays for Young Performers showcases some of the best plays for young people produced by the UKs leading theatre companies. The plays are ideal for young performers aged 13-25 and offer a diverse range of challenges, styles and subjects. The volume will prove essential for teachers and students of Drama and for youth drama groups. The plays include modern reworkings of classics, such as Simon Reades witty and brilliantly inventive adaptation of Lewis Carrolls much-loved fantasy, and DJ Brittons version of Sophocles Theban plays, the tragic Oedipus/Antigone. Contemporary teenage issues are dealt with in Megan Barkers beautiful and uplifting Promise and Sarah Mays The Butterfly Club. Simon Stephens hit-play Punk Rock set in a grammar school explores dislocation and aggression among sixth form pupils; James Grahams Tory Boyz is a fast-paced, political comedy about prejudice and ambition in Westminster.Each play features production notes and the volume is introduced by Paul Roseby, Artistic Director of the National Youth Theatre. For schools, youth theatre groups and drama colleges this anthology of thematically and stylistically diverse plays will prove an invaluable resource.
